The Bridge City Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that Rock’s Spot BBQ & Catering has been named Business of the Month for October 2019. Owner Eric “Erock” Nies accepted the award from Ambassador Candice Trahan, Marketing Executive for The Orange Leader. Award presentation took place at the October Networking Coffee hosted by Trendz!. Rock’s Spot received an acrylic award sponsored by Sabine River Ford and gifts from Tiger Rock Martial Arts of Bridge City, Sabine Federal Credit Union, 5Point Credit Union, Mary Kelone of Barefoot Souls, Neches Federal Credit Union, OhainWEB.com, Best Day Spa, and Wellspring Credit Union.
Erock started cooking with his dad 25 years ago for family gatherings and friends. After years of perfecting his rubs and recipes he decided to do catering in 2004. Originally an electrician, Erock gave up his full-time job to take care of his dad and started catering to supplement his income. Erock expanded to offer drive thru service and sit down dining for lunch as well as catering. In his spare time, Erock enjoys competition cooking and coming up with new recipes to keep his menu fresh and fun.
Rock’s Spot was nominated by Toby Armstrong, who said, “He (Erock) has offered to serve free of charge any and all emergency personnel and first responders in the area during the aftermath of tropical storm Imelda. I feel it in my heart this man and his employees and business deserve some kind of recognition more than a thanks that we can give on social media.”
